CTS Premium 450 Series Pot - Split and solid shaft versions

£6.95

About
We love CTS pots, I wouldn't use anything else for value to quality, but don't be fooled as not all of their pots are the very best! The premium 450 & 'TVT' series however are right up their with the very best. With their +/-7% tolerance, these are great for ensuring you are getting a true rating, be it 250k or 500k. These are also an audio 'Logarithmic' taper for a better, more gradual response which the human ear likes the best! 

I use this series in my own harnesses, and have done for over 2 years now. Love them!

450 & 'TVT' series CTS Premium 250k & 500k split & solid shaft. An historic visual recreation of the original potentiometer housing found in guitars and basses from the golden era of electric guitars, upgraded to modern tolerances for the best of both eras in appearance and performance. 
Audio (log) taper. Ideal volume and tone controls for instruments with singlecoil pickups. CTS pots have been used on Fender guitars for years. Split shaft for push-fit knobs.
These CTS pots are the top-of-the-line 450 series and a lot of the competition that stock CTS tend not to carry the top-spec. The ones that we have here. The 450 Series feature a brass bushing and shaft, a custom taper for greater accuracy, +/- 9% tolerance for greater consistency and a graphite wiper. Complete with two nuts and washers.

Availability
Good stock levels are usually carried across the entire 450 & 'TVT' series range due to using them in my own harnesses. But also due to the high volumes of harness orders week by week here, stocks can be depleted quite quickly. All stock levels are 'live' on the site, so what is currently showing in stock should be correct and ready for dispatch.
